Integrated Geoduck Management Framework Maps

Map Legend

Map Legend

The maps in this section are provided as a general guide to individuals who are developing their applications for shellfish aquaculture. The maps do not identify substrate types or the various land use activities that may affect the review of shellfish aquaculture applications.

  • NOTE 1: These maps are for information purposes only. They do not represent any land use zoning designation.
  • NOTE 2: All applications will be subject to a detailed review regardless of what area they fall into.

Scope of Coloured Areas

The yellow and red areas illustrated on the maps encompass sub-tidal zones to the 30 metre depth contour where wild geoduck fisheries and aquaculture activities generally occur. In areas where the depth information is limited, the yellow and red areas are characterized by straight lines and may encompass depths greater than 30 metres.

Colour Coding

Generally not available for shellfish aquaculture applications.
Generally available for shellfish aquaculture applications. Certain limitations apply.
Generally available for shellfish aquaculture applications.

Please refer to Section 6 of the Integrated Geoduck Management Framework for details of the colour coding.

Closed under the Canadian Shellfish Sanitation Program

The size and location of these sanitary closed areas may change during the year. These maps will be updated, as necessary, to represent the current sanitary closure information. These maps do not detail any closures in place due to biotoxin contamination (e.g. red tide). Please check the Pacific Region shellfish contamination website current details on all shellfish contamination closures

Cross-hatched areas on the maps identify areas that are closed to bivalve shellfish harvest.
Striped areas on the maps identify conditionally closed areas that may be open or closed for bivalve shellfish harvest at certain times of the year, depending on conditions.
